My Indianapolis Monumental Marathon 5K Race Recap for 2017
You might remember that last year when I ran the Monumental Marathon 5K in Indy, it was because I had to forego the half marathon I had signed up for due to knee problems.
This year, before I headed out to Indianapolis (only about a 40 minute drive from my house), I told my husband how great it was not to be worrying about all the things I normally would if I were heading out to run a half marathon.

When you hear or see the word athlete, what comes to mind? Do you think of the pros? Do you think of high school and college kids?
Simply put, an athlete is a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical skill.
If you would’ve known me growing up, athlete would not have been a word you used to describe me. In fact, my high school yearbook would not have said anything like “mostly likely to become an athlete”.

Motivation. Where do you find it? How can I get some? You’re so motivated! I’m just not.
Let’s face it….it’s hard to do the right thing. It’s hard to eat right. Exercise 6 days a week. That’s hard. It’s hard to refrain from gossip. You want me to smile and wave at the driver who cut me off? I’m not sure about that. It’s hard to save money. Life can just be hard sometimes. Even a lot of the time it can be hard. We all have our areas of struggle and weakness. Given that this is primarily a health and fitness blog, I’m going to focus on that part in the “life is hard” scenario.
Motivation. It’s the top thing I get asked about.
